heat up. iran claims it captured an american spy drone. the duchess of cambridge in a london hospital this morning. the latest on her condition and worldwide reaction to the royal pregnancy. we begin this morning with a look at today's eye opener your world in 90 seconds. >> i'm certain that if this is not good enough for the white house, we will go over the fiscal cliff. >> the white house rejects a republican counter offer. >> john boehner sent a proposal that offers more than $2 trillion in deficit reductions but no tax increase. >> he will not sign an extension of the bush era tax cuts for the top 2%. >> folks worried about the fiscal cliff, are you like me? are you worried about it and have no idea what it is? >> according to state tv iran's revolutionary guard captured a u.s. drone after it entered the iriranian air space over the persian gulf.
7:01am
>> but u.s. navy official says there are no missing drones. >> prince william and his wife katherine, expecting their first child. >> after the duchess was admitted to hospital. >> that child could grow up to be one of the most powerful unemployed people in the world. >> a search is under way in new york for a man accused of pushing another man to his death in the subway. rg3, he made opportunities. >> 17-16 washington redskins. >> all that -- >> why don't you shut up? >> you are an embarrassment. >> please shut up. just shut up. >> you shut up. >> that got annoying at the end. and all that matters. >> let the speculation begin. will and katherine are expecting a baby. but what happens if they have twins? >> the top baby names of 2012 were just announced and sophia
7:02am
is the top name for girls and aiden is the top name for boys. >> sochlt pphia and aiden. least popular, kim jong and sandusky. captioning funded by cbs republicans seem to be at a standstill. >> on monday gop leaders made their counter offer to president obama and officials quickly dismissed it. major garrett is at the white house this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. there's no prospect for a deal and not much talking going on either. for the first time there are numbers on the pieces of paper from the white house and the congressional republicans. there are disagreements from both sides of how serious those numbers are. for the first time there are boundaries to find agreement in the middle if those numbers yield themselves to politics.
7:03am
republicans put their plan in writing. the white house says it should have saved the paper and ink. republicans remain opposed to raising income tax rates. overall, their plan is lighter on taxes and heavier on spending ing cuts than the white house prefers. gop offered $800 billion in tax increases by eliminating or reducing unspecified deductions. $600 billion in entitlement cuts and $300 billion. white house wanted $600 billion in cuts but no inflation to adjustments. republicans also want to raise the eligibility age for medicare. the white house does not. there are other differences. nothing matters more to the white house than breaking gop resistance to higher taxes on the wealthy. >> the president certainly has principles here that he intends to stick to which is that he will not sign an extension of the bush era tax cuts for the top 2%. >> erskine bowles said as big as
7:04am
the divide appears, despair is premature. >> that is just like a movie theater you go through each one of these. to get a deal done i am positive you will have to have increased tax rates on the top 2%. i'm also sure that the cuts that the president put on the table for health care entitlements will not be sufficient to get the deal done. >> reporter: republicans said many of their ideas reflected ideas put forward first by erskine bowles, but mr. bowles quickly put out a statement denying that, giving the white house an opportunity to gloat and question the republican seriousness in all of this. here at the white house, the president will meet with half a dozen governors and discuss fiscal cliff issues. those governors may ask for resolution fearing political blowback at home. >> major, last night was the can
7:05am
you think -- congressional christmas party at the white house. >> reporter: sources tell me the speaker was here last night for the holiday event but did not stand in line for a picture with the president. no handshake, no talks. speaker boehner's office says he has plenty of pictures with the president. >> major garretht, thank you. now to the middle east. iran claims it shot down an american drone. the head of its navy says the unmanned surveillance plane is in iran's possession. the u.s. navy spokesman says no american drones are missing in the middle east. >> however if it's true this would be the third incident in one year involving iran and american drones. retired general richard myers, former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, is a cbs analyst analyst. good morning. >> good morning, charlie and norah. >> does this mean iran is getting more aggressive? and should the united states be concerned and what should it do? >> the u.s. has had a naval presence in the u.s. gulf for a
7:06am
considerably long time. if there's any concern here it seems that iran is being a little more aggressive as you mentioned, three drone incidents in the last year. it seems to be ramping up their attention in the area. and making claims that in this case we think are untrue about the current capture of a drone, not a u.s. drone. >> general, i want to turn to another story on the front pages of newspapers today. that is syria. and u.s. intelligence showing that they may be moving some of their stockpiles of chemical weapons. first, here was president obama yesterday, drawing a red line with syria. listen. >> i want to make it absolutely clear to assad and those under his command, the world is watching. the use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. and if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons, there will be consequences and you will be held accountable.
7:07am
>> so, general, does this mean we're closer to u.s. engagement? >> i don't think so at this point. as i understand it what we saw was movement or some activity in the places where they store their chemical weapons. i don't think we've seen the movement of chemical weapons forward to the point where they could be used or put on weapons. but i do think it puts syria on notice that this would be unacceptable behavior and there would be consequences for that behavior. and i like the president's words, will be held accountable. the world will be watching. these are horrific weapons, indiscriminate. men, women and children could be of course indiscriminately killed with these weapons or badly injured. i think it was good that the u.s. put syria on notice in this case. >> general, what is the trigger point for american action and what would the action be? >> that's a great point. what we do know from all reports is that there's been a lot of
7:08am
planning going on, in case there is chemical weapons activity in syria, as the assad regime feels more and more pressure from the option. what that would be i don't know. i mean if you just are talking chemical weapons, you can go after delivery vehicles aircraft artillery. you could go after stockpiles. but then there's the danger of course, of releasing chemical weapons into the atmosphere which could harm people as well. you have to be very careful. perhaps boots on the ground. at this point i think that's a long way off. i don't think -- it would take a lot of boots on the ground, i believe. and i don't think that's one of the options that anybody is considering at this point. >> if there is action would it be alone by the united states or with allies? >> ideally, it would be with allies. when you get down to it who has the capability to do the sorts of things that would need to be done? you would hope it would be with allies.
7:09am
with russian president putin's visit to turkey it looks like there might be a point now where we can start cooperating with russia on an eventual syria outcome, a syria without assad. in my view we need to look for a place to cooperate with russia. there are lot ss of areas where our interests intersect. this may be one of them. >> thank you very much, general myers. political crisis in egypt is growing, planning a general strike and massive rally outside the presidential palace. several egyptian newspapers didn't print today. private tv networks plan to shut down tomorrow. holly williams is watching it all from cairo. >> reporter: president morsi's opponents say today's protest is a final warning to the president and his islamist allies. they're expecting tens of thousands of people, perhaps more. and some of them will march on to the presidential palace. this follows days of political turmoil here in egypt, including
7:10am
protests, violent clashes. protesters are angry about two things. firstly, president morsi's power grab of 12 days ago in which he gave himself sweeping new authority, including immunity from the court. secondly they are furious about a draft constitution put to a referendum popular vote in two weeks time. critics say that gives islamic sh sharia law and fails to protect some basic freedoms. for "cbs this morning"," holly williams, cairo. now to the announcement that royal watchers waited 19 months to hear. prince william and katherine are expecting a baby. officials confirm the news on monday and also say kate will be spending the next several days in hospital. the prince went to see her this morning at london's king edward viii hospital named after his great great grandfather. mark edwards is there.
7:11am
>> reporter: good morning, norah. good morning charlie. the medical bulletin this morning, there is no medical but thein. bulletin. kate is in this hospital. she is, as you say, with prince william. she is suffering from a very acute form of morning sickness. said to be very uncomfortable to her. but at this stage not a threat to the pregnancy. prince william has come back here again this morning. this seems to be a pregnancy that the whole world is living through as well. prince william, who had taken his wife to the hospital stayed with her until late last night before leaving. his wife's condition will no doubt, be a concern for him. but doctors say kate should respond to treatment. >> it's just a severe form where you could keep down fluids not even water. and that can, obviously, become dangerous. you can become dehydrated and the aim of the admission is to rehydrate through intravenous fluids. >> reporter: kate was showing no
7:12am
outward signs of pregnancy or illness in her last public appearance visiting her old school last week. but the illness forced the palace to announce the pregnancy well before it would like to. kate is less than 12 weeks pregnant. although people are now looking back at that appearance for any indication that something was up. is that her holding her abdomen? there were other signs. william seemed particularly pleased to be given a baby outfit recently. he kept it. and did kate politely refuse to taste that peanut-based sauce for fear of an allergic reaction? and why did she drink water, not wine at that royal toast? for a couple of rock star royals like william and kate a pregnancy is both a private matter and perhaps the most public gestation since the latest -- they only planned to be in the company of children for the great unasked question to be when the little pitter patter of feet would be heard in
7:13am
palace corridors william himself born to a superstar couple the issue of how much of the story he would become contributed to the friction between the royals and the press that still exists. but william and kate's child will make a new kind of history. all being well he or she will be third in line to the throne. there are still some legal niceties to tidy up the days when male heirs jumped to the front of the line are over. in fact, there now seems to be a traffic jam of potential monarchs to be although when this baby comes along it will be third in line behind its grandfather, prince charles and father prince william. >> mark phillips thank you. kate williams is with us now, outside buckingham palace. good morning, kate.
7:14am
>> reporter: good morning. good to speak to you. >> this is historic in some ways. whether the baby is a boy or a girl, right, they will be in line? >> reporter: absolutely. this is overturning years of tradition in britain. it's always been the boy get ss the job. and the only females who get to be queen are the ones who have no male siblings like victoria who had no siblings, elizabeth ii, who had a younger sister. this moment now if we do have a little girl first, she will be queen. that's a pretty significant moment. recently in britain, we can't have women bishops, not many ceos of companies here, not many women in the political cabinet but a girl can have the top job the royal family is saying. so really the royal family leading the way in terms of policy. >> do you think the speculation will increase about what the
7:15am
sxwooen prince queen will do and what prince charles will do? >> there is a bit of a line of people in waiting. there's charles and william and then this baby and possibly this baby -- the royals really do live for such a long time. if they carry on like this this child might not come to the throne until it's 60 and i'm not going to be here. i might never see it. it may rule into the 22nd century. there is often speculation, will the queen abdicate will charles abdicate? that will never happen. charles has been waiting his whole life for the job. as long lived and living on and on, we may see a silver monarchy. there were much younger monarchs elizabeth ii was 25 when she came to the throne. in the future it will be the elderly monarchs, silver-head
7:16am
monarchy, they're going to be the ones in charge. >> how is kate doing this morning? certainly they did not want to announce this. in some ways they were forced to do it because she had to go to the hospital. >> reporter: you're exactly right, norah. the palace didn't want to announce at all. we weren't expecting an announcement really possibly until the end of the year maybe the beginning of next year. their hand was forced because kate had to go to the hospital with dehydration, severe morning sickness. the baby is not 12 weeks in the womb yet which is when you usually announce it. this was a big kind of global event. kate is on the front page of most of our newspapers this morning. it's news across the world. it's been said that royal governesses have said that royals are only private in the womb before they're born. already this child is already being speculated about, already being talked about. born june july. it's a long time to wait.
7:17am
really speculation is mounting. it's not like william. it's not like harry. it's being born into a global media world of not just the press but also everyone with camera phones and how to give this child a sort of normal childhood at the same time as being the object of scrutiny is a big challenge. >> certainly increases the fascination and affection for the royal family. kate williams thank you. >> thank you. time to show you this morning's headlines from around the globe. washington post reports fox news -- petraeus wasn't over the top military job, chairman of the joint chiefs he should resign and run for president. he ended up becoming cia director, who resigned last month over an extra marital affair. high-profile candidates mayor michael bloomberg wanted hillary clinton to succeed him. bloomberg encouraged the secretary of state to
7:18am
7:19am
cloudy skies this morning. a beautiful sunrise outside from our mount vaca cam. right now most of the bay area dry although we are starting to see scattered showers in the north bay. that's what we'll see on and off today not a whole lot of rain just a few light showers wet at times in the area. temperatures this afternoon mainly into the 60s. the main rain event coming overnight tonight into tomorrow morning. showers through wednesday, drying out on thursday and friday.
7:20am
football is a violent sport, adding guns to the mix does not help. this morning, john miller looks at the tragic case of jovan belcher and why many inside the nfl are looking at the culture of guns in pro sports. and red light cameras bring in millions of dollars in tickets for cities and towns across the country. but now drivers are fighting back. filing a massive lawsuit claiming those stoplights don't give them a fair chance. >> if you're timing them too short, then it just becomes a revenue enhancement tool. >> we'll look at this program that cities love and drivers hate, on "cbs this morning."

welcome back, everyone to "cbs this morning." we have disturbing new details in the murder-suicide case of nfl player jovan belcher. police tell "the kansas city star" that belcher's mother saw him kiss his girlfriend on the forehead saying he was sorry.
7:30am
seconds after he shot her on saturday. he also kissed his baby daughter and apologized to his own mother. >> kansas city police say belcher legally owned the handgun that he used to kill kasandra perkins and then himself there. are no official numbers, but some players and coaches say 50% to 90% of nfl players own guns. jim axelrod looks at why athletes and firearms go together so often. >> i'm 21 years old, i have a lot of money in one pocket and a gun in the other pocket and i'm saying please leave me alone. >> reporter: this is former pro football player marcellus wiley, a gun control advocate speaking three years ago at the brady center about why he used to carry a gun. >> i remember taking the same gun to the nightclubs, to the restaurants where i would go eat. not to be a villain, but just really in a warped sense of mind, an identity trying to protect myself. >> reporter: unfortunately, gun violence is not a few story for the nfl. in 2006 police found six
7:31am
firearms including two assault rifles, in the home of then chicago bears defensive tackle tank johnson. in 2008 former new york giants wide receiver plaxico burress accidentally shot himself in the leg with his own gun at a nightclub. in 2009 retired star quarterback steve mcnair was shot to death by his mistress in a murder-suicide. after the jovan belcher murder-suicide, bob costas set off a bis of a controversy when he decided to address the issue of gun control during an nfl broadcast. >> if jovan belcher didn't possess a gun, he and kasandra perkins would both be alive today. >> why do athletes love guns? the reality is this is a gun culture. lots of people own guns. >> reporter: he says the issue of guns and athletes is about youth, money, and perceived
7:32am
power. >> the problem is that many don't outgrow their power, a new national pastime has some very deep seated issues. >> reporter: the league has had a strict gun policy in place since 1996 that prohibits players from bringing guns to any facility or event affiliated with the league. but that was not enough to stop a tragedy in kansas city this past weekend. for "cbs this morning," i'm jim axelrod in new york. >> senior correspondent john miller former fbi assistant director joins us now. how do they go about enforcing the existing gun laws? >> well what they do is -- they've got this policy and jeff miller the former head of the pennsylvania state police head of security for the nfl, john rossi, his deputy. they go team to team city to city and they sit down and go over a number of security issues, but they cover this gun policy very carefully saying every law in every state is different. you can't go traveling around
7:33am
with it without understanding those laws. the key is this policy is very strict. it says nfl prohibitions a stadium, a facility owned or operated. that means stadiums locker rooms, hotels buses, planes. there's a strict prohibition on guns and the players are -- their cars are screened coming into stadiums for parking. so a violation of that means hitting them in the pocketbook. >> but the issue here is culture, is it not? >> well there's an argument that we've heard in the axelrod piece that it is culture. i think the nfl officials look at it from a more practical sense, which is you have a number of people who come from tough places in tough cities who now go home to see friends, to see family to visit the neighborhood, but then you have the complicating factor that in the inner city of baltimore, and
7:34am
you're stopped at a light with $100,000 worth of jewelry and a gold bentley convertible, you are a target. that's on the profile side. on the personal side you have sean taylor, who was killed if a home invasion where he was the target because they believed he was rich and he had money in the house. on a personal security basis, they address this as a reality they have to deal with. >> strong supporters of the second amendment always say that it's guns don't kill people, people kill people. their argument also too would be does this obscure this discussion about guns in the nfl, obscure the discussion about what is domestic violence. i mean his killed his girlfriend, the mother of his 3-month-old baby. >> and that would be another discussion. i would revert to the profilers about what are the characteristics of the murder-suicide, and was the gun obtained for the purpose of that? was this part of a plan? in this case that's probably not entirely clear. in fact, the investigation is still focused on where did this gun come from? was it his or someone else's?
7:35am
so i guess my point is if someone's planning to do something like that and they're determined, there's very little in terms of either regulations or law that's going to stop them. >> so what's the next step? as you pointed out, the nfl has some clear policy guidelines and prohibitions about where these players can take their guns. do you think they take it a step further? >> i don't think there is a next step here except they're going to reinforce that message. but also we have obtained a copy of the nfl players' personal security guide. this booklet tells them what to do to stay safe, and 30 pages, it doesn't say anything about if you have a gun. what it says is have your house alarmed when you're away and while you're asleep. have a panic room installed with the hinges on the inside and a charged cell phone inside. so they're playing defense, not offense in the personal security rules. >> but the tragedy here clearly has renewed the discussion about what ought to be done. >> and as

>> you were just with led zeppelin you interviewed them, right? >> remarkable. so great to see them and see how they were so treated by awesome people at the kennedy center honors. including david letterman. >> those interviews will be coming up in just a couple weeks. also we recently reported on those red light cameras that snap a picture of your license plate if you run the light. this morning, new york city is facing a class action lawsuit. as mark strassmann reports, the city is accused of rigging the lights to catch more drivers and get more tickets and more money. >> reporter: they're gotcha cameras mounted at intersections. their photos catch and help ticket drivers running red lights. new york city had them first in 1998. red light cameras are to prevent the very dangerous t-bone crashes where you have the front of one vehicle running into the side of another. we are in favor in concept of red light cameras, but they have
7:42am
to be done to certain engineering criteria. >> reporter: by federal law, they have to have time to get through a yellow light, three second at the typical 30-mile-per-hour intersection. back in october, engineers at aaa new york discovered a problem. at some city intersections with the cameras, the yellow lights were almost a half second too fast. red light violators who later had to pay up now feel set up. >> when the amber lights are too short, people are getting cited we think unfairly. if you're timing them too short it becomes a revenue enhancement tool and it erodes support for a red light camera program. >> reporter: brian hughes paid a $50 fine after a camera caught him running a red light in manhattan in 2010. >> a $50 ticket might not seem like a lot of money to some people, but it's a lot to me at the end of the day. so it makes me overly hesitant when i drive. >> reporter: hughes is part of a class action suit alleging fraud against the city of new york and its 150 red light cameras. they help generate more than
7:43am
$235 million in fine revenue the last five years. $47 million last year alone. >> the city in this case and many other municipalities have a great incentive to shorten the duration of the yellow lights. >> reporter: the new york city department of transportation in a statement said there has been no substantiation that any red light cameras
